    Heading out in a few days for a week. It looks like there should be some swell. Will report on it. I might try to hit the chacala area for a day.

    This has been a very good summer in Orange County. Some great days, but more importantly it has been consistent.

    There is something deeply wrong with you. I don't really care about this topic, but you are a pathetic excuse for a man if you wish a dog dead. Man is probably not the correct term in this case.

    Newport has been great all month. I have gotten lots of mid-day windows for the last few weeks, which has been really nice. Nothing huge, but at least shoulder high with pretty good shape on most...

    Great footage as always Skier666!

    I'm really glad the surf has been good around here, it mitigates the disappointment at missing the last two May weekends.

    Yeah!!!

    That is a sick shot. Hopefully next year, if things go well. It was pretty melted out when I was last there, May 12, the traverse was not doable and coverage in the chute was thin. ...

    Many thanks guys. I'm definitely looking forward to it.

    I figured Punta Mita was pretty safe. Surfline has a feature up called Cartel Land which is straight up scary.

    So I'm finally going to get to this area. We have some points to use, and we were thinking about Aruba, but have settled on Punta Mita, late August. We will be staying at the St. Regis for 6...

    I go with my wife, but I do most of the driving.
